I've uploaded svgalib with maintainer field set to QA; orphaning the
package, becouse I think I am not skilled enough for it.

write your intentions in another place apart from the Subject: field of 
email... :-)

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
retitle 132042 ITA: svgalib -- Console SVGA display utilities
thanks

I've been a registered Debian developer for years but haven't been
active due to a lack of a PC to work from.  I now have a new PC that I
can dedicate as a Linux desktop so I'm able to return to Debian
development.  SVGAlib sounds like a good place to start.

My new PC has a Radeon 7500 that is only directly supported in svgalib
1.9.x, but my Linux firewall has a Cirrus Logic 5446 which is compatible
with svgalib 1.4.x in VESA mode.  That should be enough 

From the upstream author's comment in the SVGAlib mailing list, it sound
like it'll be a long time before svgalib 2.0 comes out.  I intend to
package svgalib 1.9 seperately (some changes in it aren't compatible
with 1.4), and hopefully I can back-port the new drivers in the 1.9
series to 1.4.3 - if not, I'll ask maintainers of packages using svgalib
to switch to the newer library.

My key in the Debian keyring is a PGP 2 key which doesn't work with
gnupg, and I'm currently waiting for my new key to be uploaded to the
keyring.  I may have to ask another developer to NMU my packages for me
until my key is uploaded.

I forgot to close this bug when I have adopted svgalib. I think I messed
up something. *Sorry*
